I want to thank you, Ottumwa, for allowing me into your lives the last two years. I want to continue growing as a journalist, and I'm happy I chose The Ottumwa Courier to start my career. Now, it's time to tell another community's story.
Do the things that scare you. Jump off a mountain. Challenge yourself in your career. Move across the country. Those experiences will change you for the better. At the very least, they'll make a good story.
